i love christmas. and i love parties. i have been in my current house for the last 4 christmas's and the last 4 christmas's i haven't been able to throw my big lavish dinner parties like i had done for the 3 years prior to this current home...gosh...im getting old. anyways my new home doesn't have the ideal huge space to bring in tables and do a big dinner but i can mange to have a more casual fun Christmas party and thats exactly what i ended up doing this year. i tried to keep things low key but with a twist of Cinta Flair. For this party i threw out the fancy stuff and went with fun, classic, and casual. I had a request of "festive" attire. Meaning anything from your ugly christmas sweater, elf costume, or something a little nicer, and boy did we have a wide range of festiveness. it was great. The big hit of the night was my roommates hand made Buddy the Elf costume that he made all by himself using just a hot glue gun. No sewing at all was used in the making of this fantastic costume. Champagne cocktails, yummy treats, and a classic white elephant gift exchange made for a perfect saturday evening and a great way to celebrate with friends before we all start heading home for the holidays.
how great does our Buddy the elf look?!
